  1. I need a new case, my trusty Lian-Li 65b is not cooling my new heat producing mad hardware the way i would like it. I love my case, but the days of its 80mm fans are over. And I need 120mm for sure.

    Now when it comes to a case I am picky, I dont like big flashy alien looking cases all bubbled out and stuff. I like a clean look inside and out, very contemporary. I want my case to say "Im classy and mean all rolled into one"
    Kinda the feeling you get when you look at a BMW......They are beautiful, but not overdone, yet pack a punch if you happen to get next to one at the green light.....

    Basically with that said I need a 120mm intake and exhaust and preferably a side fan to blow on my 8800GTX which is my biggest heat problem at the moment. It needs to be black, a mid tower and preferably a have a side window but it is somthing that I will sacrafice for the right case.

    Just spent about an hour on newegg searching the cases and I only came up with one solution that has everything I am looking for. However some of the parts on the case seem weak such as the plastic bracket for the PCI expantion slots.

    These are examples of what I do not want to have reccomended:

    Other than that I am open to suggestions....

    So Let the suggestions role in :D

    Thanks in advance

    I'm personally very fond of that Antec 900 case that jb444, mentioned.

    Does anyone have this that can tell us what it's like?
